Applied Geosciences Master
We welcome you to our 2-year MSc program Applied Geosciences at KIT. Since the foundation of the Karlsruhe University in 1825, Applied Geosciences has continuously contributed to the further development of KIT in research and teaching. At Germany's oldest University of Technology, we focus on the sustainable use of the environment, above and underground.
Our applied study program is hosted within the Engineering Faculty of Construction-Geo-Environment. In our English Master's program ERS you will acquire competences on Sustainable Energy-Resources-Storage (ERS) according to your interests. For our other two profiles, the language of instruction is German.
